Portugal Rugby Youth Festival postponed to October 17-18

Due to the new coronavirus epidemic, the Portugal Rugby Youth Festival will be postponed to October 17-18, 2020. Move Sports, the event organiser, is making this decision in line with the latest recommendations from the Portuguese Government, through its National Health Service (NHS), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the Portuguese Rugby Federation, which cancelled all rugby activity in the country.

Football, rugby, tennis, handball, volleyball, basketball... There are many options when it comes to workout, even a simple run in the street could do the purpose.

Sports were always seen as a positive thing when it comes to health and well being. But it goes a long way beyond that. It brings a series of benefits, not just for the individual but also to the whole community.

Some call it the biggest sports event in the world: last February 2, the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers played the 54th edition of the Super Bowl at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida, to determine the 2019 National Football League champion. The game was followed by an estimated 100 million viewers in the USA alone, thus commanding the highest rates for half-time TV commercials: McDonald's, Amazon, Coca-Cola, Porsche, Microsoft, Google - to name but a few - paid around 5 million dollars per each of their 30-second ads.

It isn't easy to talk about death. Worse when the departure happens too soon. Even worse when it is about a man that grew to be an icon. A legend. You could say that he became bigger than the game itself.
